I began studying geology and physical geography in Liverpool University in 2005 where I got my MESci. Worked for Neftex (Abingdon) before going back to Liverpool University to work for the Strat Group (now part of the Basins Studies and Petroleum Geoscience Group in Manchester University) as a research assistant. This job took me to the Karoo in South Africa, studying a range of sedimentary depositional environments from fluvial to deep marine fans. After a year and a half back in Liverpool I began my PhD in Lancaster University studying the provenance of the Nile delta cone sediments. I am currently 3 and half years into the project and am writing up my thesis before starting a job with CGG Robertson in North Wales. You can read more about my research here.

One of our first tasks in undertaking this provenance study was to characterise each source area of the river Nile in order to identify its signature down-stream in […]
